mitt romney hopes to make history. if he does, it won't be his if the governor goes on to win, he could go back to the very city that coordinated barack obama in 2008. a city never get a second chance to make a first impression. when everything is said and done about these debates, such will be sent to the first debate, the debate in denver that created a stir. and for mitt romney, momentum. the debate to prove that he is to be seen as presidential. that moment to make a good first impression because life really affords you a second opportunity. that was the chance that romney needed. despite less than convincing follow-up performances, maybe the rest does not matter. that was the debate about voters thinking that mitt romney was just as likable and capable and may be just as ready. maybe, just maybe, that was the debate that made mitt romney the possible president. we will know in two weeks. here is what we know now. romney is as competitive as he is, because what he did in denver. that may very well have been the debate but did matter. two weeks out, until these very close elections.
of those years in hanoi. romney has never served his country. the only prisoner he's been captive of are the right wing haters that are smelling up the republican campaign. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. 13 days until election day. here's where the race stands. the "new york times" 538 blog shows president obama leading the national poll average with 50% of the popular vote. mitt romney has 48.9%. and according to 538, if the election were held today, the president would win re-election well 288 electoral votes. romney would get 250. it takes 270 votes to win the white house. a brand new ohio poll gives the president a five-point lead in that crucial state propelled by a two to one average in early voting. as of tonight, 6.5 million people have already voted in this election. with over a million voting in just the last 24 hours. we'll have much more on the early vote later on in this show. but we start with tonight's lead. hiding in plain sight. we know
the campaign trail. he's got to go run the country. that leaves mitt romney in a kind of odd position at that point, too, because he can't look like he's just campaigning. >> schieffer: what does he do, join the national guard? ( laughter ). >> he doesn't want to look like he's faking it and getting in the president's way. you saw john mccain raise the bar for the president. saying remember john mccain suspend-- he did it a couple of times, but one for hurricane gustav, a knocked a day off the republican convention to try to create a sense of "i'm president." one of the things important about taking the president off the campaign trail in terms of this early vote question, when want president ams can to town he's fly paper and gets people there to the events. what do the campaigns do? they turn those people into solterlz who will then go knock on dispersants on that final push at the end. they also turn them into votes in some states. i was in ohio this week. they were bussing them from the event to the early polling place where the, where the romney forces were watching to see how bi
like they should. mitt romney and i are running because we believe americans are better off in a dynamic free enterprise based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity come and upward mobility is of a government- directed stance that creates dependency. [applause] you know there's something wrong in our country when 40% of children born to parents in the lowest fifth of earners never know anything better. the question before us today demands a serious answer. how do we get the engines of opera mobility turned back on so that no one is left out of the promise of america? to answer that, we have to take a hard look at the approach the government has been taking for the last five decades and ask yourself if it's working. the approach has been to spend lots of money on anti-poverty programs. the money behind this approach is that a nation should measure compassion by the size of the government and how much it spends. the problem is, starting in the 1960's, this top-down approach created a debilitating culture of dependency wrecking communities. this was so obvious to ev
, we will come out of it at the end thinking, i actually know something of mitt romney's philosophy as he looks at the world and america's place in it. i understand better what president obama wants to do and how he sees things. >> schieffer: well, do you think-- most american elections and so far this one has been exactly the same, they're generally about economic policy, about pocketbook issues. does foreign policy, could it actually make a difference? could it be a tipping point in this election? >> oh, you never know. you know. we've got-- as i said, 16 days before election, but as kevin madden said no, 15 days and 20 hours. you know what i mean? things are going very quickly. any number of things can happen. the world is at a boil in various places, such as the middle east, where both candidates really fight it out. also, i would say, i mean, i wonder if the candidates will talk about this, america's foreign policy is utterly dependent on america having good economic policy that helps america be wealthy. all of our strength is connected to our wealth. so in a way, foreign polic
obama, governor romney, already backstage at this moment. there are about 300 people in the audience there in boca raton, millions more watching from home and, george, every debate has changed the race. >> no question about it. round one, a big win for governor romney. president obama, scored a more narrow victory last week and tonight our abc/"the washington post" poll, what happens tonight will set the stage. >> we want to take a look because in the audience already, mrs. romney, mrs. obama. both of whom said they get more nervous than the candidates at these debates. >> a lot of pressure also on tonight's moderator, bob schieffer of cbs news. the third time he's moderated a presidential debate. the focus on foreign affairs from lynn university in boca raton, florida. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university here in boca raton, florida. this is the fourth and last debate of the 2012 campaign brought to you by the commission on presidential debates. this one is on foreign policy. i'm bob schieffer of cbs news. the questions are mine, and i have not shared them with the can

until voters head to the polls. romney focusing today on the battleground of ohio, while president obama hit three more swing states. what are the candidates' strategies for the final stretch? karl rove on romney's approach. >> indict president bam become's record using his own words and standards and do in zo in sorrow, not in anger. disappointment, not malice. second of all, talk about that he has a plan to help the middle class. the final element is accentuate he was a republican governor in a heavily democrat state. >> dana: karl on obama's campaign strategy. >> frankly, they have not offered a plan for the second term. they took his convention speech, boiled it -- bumped it up to 20-page pamphlet and handed it out as a plan for the future. the second element of the strategy, attack romney. say, they got three ads up running now. on the stump and in their ads and commentary, they'll depict romney as a liar. this is really difficult to do. dangerous for a president to do. unpresidential, and it's difficult to do when your opponent has higher favorable ratings than you do. >> dana: tak
and bayonets. >> governor romney appeared presidential. the president appeared small. >> clearly if you watch this debate, the president looked like the stronger guy. >> there were times where it felt like we went to a foreign policy debate and a domestic policy debate broke out. >> i love teachers, but i want to get our private sector going. >> i think we all love teachers. >>> california some of the worst weather in the country. a couple tornados near the sacramento area. >> i stepped out on my back porch and there kfs. >> apple is expected to take the wraps off a smaller version of the ipad today, half the size of the regular ipad. >> and the giants have won the pennant. >> these guys just never quit. >>> a beluga whale who scientists say was trying to mimic a human voice. >> someone got into my house. >> a 10-year-old stops a burglary inside her own home. >> you did a very good job. >> thank you. >>> that shot says it all. the bears will get win number five on the season. >> are you okay? >> i'm good, i'm good. >>> ahh! >> you've got to stop putting words in my mouth, sir. let me finish.
on foreign policy. with the race still very tight, both president obama and mitt romney have a lot to gain and a lot to lose in their final joint appearance before a national audience. it might be their last best chance to win over the uncommitted voters who will decide the election, which is now just two weeks away. for tonight's debate, the candidates will be seated together at a table with bob schieffer, anchor of "face the nation." this is the third time bob has moderated the final presidential debate. >> schieffer: good evening from the campus of lynn university here in boca raton, florida. this is the fourth and last debate of the 2012 campaign brought to you by the commission on presidential debates. this one's on foreign policy. i'm bob schieffer of cbs news. the questions are mine and i have not shared them with the candidates or their aides. the audience has taken a vow of silence-- no applause, no reaction of any kind except right now when we welcome president barack obama and governor romney.

.m. tonight. there's also news this morning on the campaign front. mitt romney has won the endorsement of the "des moines register" in battleground state iowa. this has not gone to a republican presidential candidate since richard nixon. so to get some reaction to that, and other things, we go to our go-to guy in arizona for news, weather, and sports, john mccain. how's the weather out there, senator? and good morning to you. >> it's very nice and balmy. i think the storm may not reach arizona. but, obviously, the disruption of the airline-- the whole nation, obviously, and our prayers and thoughts are with those who line the path of the storm, and we'll keep praying. >> schieffer: all right. i want to ask you about that endorsement by the "des moines register." i mean, sometimes endorsements matter. sometimes they don't. it what about this one? >> i think in ray close race, the "register" is very well regarded, and of course it's almost a man bites doggistic because the "register" has not endorsed a republican since, i guess, calvin coolidge. i don't know. i think that aspect of it is
they have planned. >> i was reminded how much it has benefited governor romney to have participated in the debates and forums in the primaries. he comes across at somebody is who is comfortable in the tee bite format. the president hasn't done it for now years and there's no question that worked to governor romney's benefit. >> it's an interesting observation. leads to my next question which is, in this campaign what do you think has had more impact can debates or campaign advertising? as you know going into the campaign seen a year ago, everybody was talking about money going to be poured into advertising and what kind of impact that could have, hough it could influence the outcome, and there was an escalating spending war going on. do the debates have more of an impact? maybe a little too early to tell. >> depends who you're talking about. if you live in about a dozen states, those ads are killing you. maybe eight states. there's so many of them it's all you see when you turn on the television. we get a little bit of it here in washington because we're next door to virginia, and m
. they just played them in a new ad, tying them to mitt romney. >> this fall i'm supporting richard mourdock for senate. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> for his part the romney campaign had this to say -- "governor mitt romney disagrees with richard mourdock and mourdock's comments do not reflect governor romney's views. we disagree on the policies regarding exceptions for rape and incest but still support him." the romney campaign also said it's not pulling the pro-mourdock ad it made. a short time ago i talked with senator john mccain about the controversy. made some news, and we'll bring that to you in just a moment. first, though, jim acosta traveling with the romney campaign. dan lothian is covering team oba obama. jim, the governor seemed to have some momentum then the later debate stalled some progress perhaps. we haven't seen a lot of poll numbers. now his team has spent a valuable campaign day on the defensive over this. does this story concern them overall? >> i think it does, anderson, and you can te
, florida, for the third and final debate between president barack obama and former governor mitt romney. when they leave the stage tonight after 90 minutes together, these two men are not expected to see one another again until after the election two weeks from now. it is safe to say neither campaign in either its wildest dreams nor worst fears expected to be in a dead heat with 15 days to go. but that's what our national poll shows. as of tonight, our nbc news national polling has it this way. 47% obama, 47% romney. tonight's topic is foreign affairs. our moderator, bob schieffer of cbs news. last time these two men debated, it was instantly labeled the most contentious event of its kind in the modern political era. a lot of it had to do with body lang age as they circled each other. tonight they'll be seated and thankfully separated by the moderator, all of this happening in a critical battleground state of florida. so without further delay, we'll go now to the moderator, bob schieffer, who will be leading us through tonight's debate. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university
romney and paul ryan. the house is coming into session. this will probably be over in two minutes tops. then stay tuned for president obama at 10:10 a.m. eastern time. thank you all for joining us for this post-debate reaction on "washington journal."

who might be leaning towards obama, might be leaning towards romney, but haven't cemented it in. so what we're going to see over the next two weeks or next 12 days, is they are going to make an effort to try to lock up their base, get their vote out, but also try to get these uncommitted voters to come their way. so, we've heard a lot in their messages. it has all come down to the economy. the last presidential debate this past week was about foreign policy but dominated by the discussion of the economy and that's what we're going to hear from the candidates on the campaign trail. >> candy, ultimately those, that small sliver that mark is talking about, wants answers as you suggest, they are not likely to get in the next week and a half or so. inevitably, there are going to be unanswered questions. it won't matter for the loser what is the advantage to being nonspecific right now. can they still -- can these candidates who are deadlocked, can they win this election without getting more specific? >> well, somebody will without -- and neither one of them have been very specific as you
three national interviews on his slate. governor mitt romney is hoping to get a little national attention of his own. he is ramping up for a all-out push for iowa for what his campaign is calling a significant economic address. we expect that this afternoon in the city of ames. that is before moving on to ohio for an event this evening with running mate, congressman paul ryan. jon: as we get closer to election day there are lots of questions right now about the impact of president obama's bad october is having on democrats around the country in other races. take a look at the balance of power in the house right now. republicans hold the majority, 240 seats, to democrats 190. there are five vacant seats right now. let's talk about it with shane deapril of campaigns and elections magazine. he is the editor. shane, democrats have talked like they would be able to recapture the house, maybe put nancy pelosi back in place as speaker of the house. how is that looking right now after the month the president obama has had? >> yeah right now, jon, it doesn't look good in terms of democra
